We don't know about you, but it feels like Winter Love Island basically just ended, with the live final taking place on 13th March. But fast forward seven weeks, and it's officially back, as Love Island has been confirmed for another season later this summer. Woohoo!
The summer series was announced in June last year, ensuring our whole summer is filled with a brand new group of Islanders ready to fall in love. But who will be in the cast? Where will the season take place? And will Maya Jama return as host? This is everything you need to know about the summer Love Island 2023 season.
When is the Love Island final?
Ok so it seems the Love Island final date may have just been confirmed by Sam Thompson during the latest episode of Love Island: After Sun and it's actually so soon.
Speaking on the ITV2 show whilst discussing Ella B's arrival in the villa, Sam said it was a shame she was in there so late as she only has two and a half weeks left before the show ends to make an impact.
Erm, Sam, we think you may have just spilled the finale date. If Sam is correct, that there's only two and a half weeks left of the show, then this means the final is likely to happen in the week beginning 31st July.
Only two weeks to go? We're so not ready for it to end.
When is Casa Amor returning?
It's the week we've all been waiting for and now finally, the iconic Casa Amor is set to return in just a matter of days.
According to a report in The Mirror, Casa Amor is set to return this Sunday 2nd July, and is expected to be full of surprises.
One of those surprises could be a return from dumped Islander Molly Marsh, who has reportedly flown back to Spain following her return to the UK. Um, Molly coming back to the villa to confront Zach? We're here for it.
What is summer Love Island's release date?
Love Island revealed with a tweet on 24th May 2023 that they were back in less than two weeks! "It's a date! #LoveIsland returns Monday 5th June," they shared alongside a picture of host Maya Jama.

Series eight in 2022 kicked off on Monday, 6th June 2022, while season seven in 2021 landed on the 28th June. While 2020 didn't happen for obvious reasons, launch date in 2019 was Monday 3rd June, while 2018 was the 4th June. So this season follows the same pattern, then.
When was summer Love Island 2023 confirmed?
The next season of Love Island was confirmed all the way back in June 2022 by ITV, who promised a double helping of the series for 2023.
At the time Paul Mortimer, the Director of Reality Commissioning and Controller at ITV2, said: "Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation’s favourite talking point across the summer, and we’re always blown away by the show’s ongoing impact and talkability amongst our younger audience.
"So, rather than just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we’d make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show."
We can't wait!
Who will present summer Love Island?
Maya Jama is officially back for a second season, after joining the Love Island team for the winter version of the show. She took over from hosting duties after Laura Whitmore stepped down from the role in 2022.
Where will summer Love Island take place?
When announcing Love Island would be returning for summer 2023, ITV also confirmed the series would be taking place in its usual location of Mallorca. Last year we saw the Islanders arrive at a brand new stunning villa, so it's likely it could take place there again. Let the countdown begin!
